Faith formation and religious education is a lifelong experience. We offer classes for young people to introduce them to Jesus and our Catholic faith and traditions. Through a partnership with parents, we help children to prepare to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion as well as the Sacrament of Confirmation. (Please see Sacramental Preparation for more information)
Kindergarten - 5th Grade
K-5 religious education is on Sundays from 9:15am - 10:15am at the John Paul Regional Catholic School. Journey with us through our rich Catholic faith and learn about Jesus and to live for Jesus!
Middle School (6th - 8th Grade)
Our middle school religious education program meets on Sundays from 9am- 10:15am at St. Gabriel's Annex (Confirmation Program)and the John Paul Regional Catholic School from 915am- 10:15am. We strive in our programs, not to live comfortably, but BOLDLY for Jesus Christ! Our goal is to connect the head and heart and instill in our students the desire for holiness.
BELIEVING FORWARD MINISTRY (9th - 10th Grade)
BELIEVING FORWARD is our senior high religious education program on Sundays from 9am-10:15am at St. Gabriel's Annex. Jesus said to his apostles "Go out and teach ALL nations". Our BELIEVING FORWARD program is aimed at making disciples out of our teens. Naturally in our culture today there is a fear but these students learn by sharing their faith with younger children.
